Where the Color Meets the Sketch

Hi All: I've combined 2 challenges today; Curtain Call Color Challenge {Act 34};
which can be found on Stacey's Stamping Stage and Inkspirations Sketch Challenge; # 27 which can be found on Inkspirations by Makeesha Byl. I had a lot of fun with this one, I don't know if you could call it a masculine card, but it definitely has a masculine look to it. There's lots of layers and embossing with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing foler. Here's a bit of a close up look Stamps: All a Flutter and Occasional Quotes
Paper: Basic Grey, Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango and Sahara Sand
Ink: Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Pad, Dusty Durango, Sahara Sand, Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Write Markers and Versamark
Accessories: Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder, Flower Brads, Dimensionals, Paper Snips, Black Embossing Powder
Punches: Wide Oval, Scalloped Oval and Large Oval
The butterflies were stamped with Versamark and embossed with black embossing powder, colored with Stampin' Write Markers and then cut out. A little tedious, but I think it was worth it. The rest is pretty straightforward, but feel free to email me with questions.
I would love to know what you all think.

Oh Wow! I didn't really think of embossing the whole card with all the layered paper. This is another brilliant card! TFS and thank you for leaving a comment in my blog about my cards :)

Wow! My first impression when I saw your card is the embossing makes it looks like mosaic tiles. Those butterflies really pop against that background. Very pretty! Glad you joined us for the Curtain Call this week!

BTW-I found my way to you from the Stampin' Connection "blog surfing" thread. I was just dumb luck your card was a Curtain Call card!
